EX1 – The New Cosmetics Range For Asian and Exotic Skins

By  |  1 Comment

Following our introductory Women of Colour (WOC) article at the beginning of the year, we’re delighted to bring you EX1 which is a recently launched multi award-winning make-up brand targeted at women with Asian and exotic (think Middle Eastern, Mediterranean etc) skins.

The unique yellow/golden undertones prevalent throughout EX1 products are designed to mimic the natural pigments found in exotic skin types, and best of all the range is pocket friendly, something exotic skinned customers have struggled with in the past.

In the image (clockwise from top left) we have :

    Thank you for writing this article and please excuse my terrible english, I am French student studying English (can you tell..?) I have already use EX1 and did not like very much their foundation, to light for my color.

    I wondered if you know of a natural cosmetic range called Anita Grant. They are very bon! They do also have launched mineral foundation named Hello Beautiful (I like the name very much) and offer couleurs darker than EX1 and have only natural ingredients.

    Perhaps you should contact them? Anita Grant is loved by many women of color around the world I use them on my Afro curly hairs, they have Monoi which is very very nice for my skin & I have purchase samples of foundation in Hot Fudge and Fondant au Chocolat.

    I do enjoy Simply Woman, and tell my English friends about it so please write more about WOC beauty, culture, hair, etc…


    À bientôt
